Do you accept insurance?

Due to the sensitive nature of our work, I am not contracted with insurance carriers. However, services may be covered in full or in part by your out of network health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session with an out-of-network provider?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

How can I get the most from therapy?

  • Take time after your session to reflect on how you can incorporate your therapy experience in your day-to-day life. I will offer ideas.

  • While therapy sessions can be intense and transformational, the most important work of therapy takes place outside my office. Practice the tools and ideas we discuss between sessions.

  • Know that therapy is a process and change takes time.

  • When therapy sessions are especially difficult, this can be a time of growth and positive change.

  • Be as honest and open as you feel comfortable.

The No Suprises Act

According to the No Surprises Act, as of January 1, 2022, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the expected charges for medical services. The Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, and Marriage & Family Therapist Board rules require me to provide you with the actual cost of my charges in a written Informed Consent form to which you must agree prior to my providing services. In most cases it is impossible to estimate how many sessions you will need, and that will not be determined until your concerns are evaluated. Session frequency and total number of sessions will also vary based on the progress that you make, which depends in part on your efforts with the process. You will be free to discontinue services at any time or the services may otherwise be terminated in accordance with the Informed Consent form language.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask any health care provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. You will receive a copy of your Good Faith Estimate.
